Alan Tudyk, who played the droid K-2S0 in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, has shared his excitement at returning for the prequel TV show.
While the future of Star Wars on the big screen may be unclear, we know that Disney+ will continue to provide the goods with a number of series on the way – including a Rogue One prequel focused on Cassian Andor.
Alan Tudyk, who played Cassian’s droid companion K-2S0 on the film, will be returning for the series and he has shared his excitement about the project at an event for the Television Critics Association (via /Film):
“Playing with Cassian, playing with Diego Luna, and being in the world of Star Wars again, especially after seeing The Mandalorian and seeing what they can do with a series, how much fun it is to just go into smaller stories and tell stories that way.”
The actor also detailed how he refused to let a body double come in and for himself to only do the voice work: “I don’t want anybody else doing that. It means a lot to me. They offered it but it’s not a voice over job for me. Because his face doesn’t move, that’s what you have your body to show emotion. And because of [playing I, Robot’s] Sonny and just because of theater, I’m trained. I studied that and it’s something I enjoy.”
There is no word when the series will release on Disney+ but with that, the Kenobi series and The Mandalorian season 2, there is plenty for Star Wars fans to look forward to.
